Let history decide whether it’s crap or not.

Says Mike Monteiro in this book.

A very wise (and handsome) man once told me, “No one’s going to know what you think about unless you write and publish your opinions.” I was incredibly shy and insecure about my writing when he said that. (Here’s a secret: you don’t get over it. You push through it.) Yet I knew that for the sake of my business I had to take that advice to heart. And you should too. People need to know who you are so that they can write you checks. Write! Design! Put yourself out there. Let history decide whether it’s crap or not.But unless you’re putting yourself where people can see you and making your opinions known, clients or potential employers won’t be able to find you. And the more you write, the better you’ll get at it.

Well said.
